Had the pleasure of meeting him twice in Hereford in recent years ... strangely both times in West Street .. modest, approachable and very courteous..impossible for him to be incognito like others in the regiment of course..

Maybe the Top Brass at Stirling Lines can think of an appropriate and permanent memorial at Credenhill recognising 2 generations of fine soldiers?
